The victorious Loreto team following the NEBSSA U14 Rounders competition

The Year 10 Rounders team from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, had a successful day at the annual NEBSSA U14 Rounders competition on Tuesday 21st June 2011, successfully defending the College’s title in the event.

Loreto College played host to the tournament, the fifth annual event, which was also represented by visiting teams from Coleraine Girls’ High School, Dunluce School and Coleraine College.  After a lively morning of competition in drizzly weather, an incredibly tightly-contested final was played between Loreto College and Coleraine Girls’ High School.  Loreto emerged victorious by the narrowest of margins, with a final scoreline of 10.5 to 10: this was the third year in succession that Loreto had taken the title.

The members of the victorious Loreto College team were: Caitlin Richardson, Ceara Mellon, Victoria Bell, Shannon McWilliams, Una Mellon, Ciara Dinsmore, Shannon Donaghy, Niamh Wallace, Kayleigh Fleming, Seanin McGee, Siofra Gillen, Simone Boorman, Caitlin Norton and Rachel Crawford.

Mrs Maureen McCullough, Head of PE at Loreto College, paid tribute to all the teams, who had taken part in good spirit throughout the event, playing to a magnificent standard, especially in the Final.  Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated all those who had been involved in the event.
